When Physics go viral !

Several thousands of virus species have been reported in nature but there are likely to be much more. 219 of these are known to infect humans. Viruses are so small that although their presence was identified more than a century ago, it is only thanks to the progress of microscopy in the 30s that they could finally be observed. Viruses are studied from a variety of angles by many branches of science. For instance, understanding the geometric shape of these microscopic entities can help us find how they enter their host cells but also devise methods to develop new therapies.
